sgm0134 - Developed by Ancient Co. Ltd., Quintet Co., Ltd. and Published by Enix America Corporation, "Robotrek" is a rare SNES game that was released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) in October of 1994. The scenario is that you've just moved into the town of Rococo, and you're bored stiff. There doesn't seem to be anything to do around town, and your father who happens to be a world-famous inventor wont let you into the basement to tinker with his Invention Machine. After a renegade group of pirates called Hackers invade Rococo, the townspeople are in a panic nobody seems to know what the Hackers want! Now you're torn between helping your father fight the Hackers and sneaking into the basement to look at his latest invention. Thats the backstory of ROBOTREK. The rest of the game is an RPG that will take you to another dimension as you search for answers and the truth. Are you ready for the adventure you'd never thought you'd have the opportunity to take?

Robotrek has similar gameplay to that of most RPG video games, with the notable exception that the main character is not the combatant; rather, the robots he invents are, making it more similar to Pokémon and Dragon Quest Monsters. The robots are highly customizable, in aspects such as equipment, special attacks, body color and name. The player is allowed to build a maximum of three robots. Unlike many RPGs, the player must invent or create the robots equipment, use "Program Points" to set the robot's attributes (as opposed to these attributes being set by the game), and program special attacks in a macro-like fashion, although certain commands do special effects instead.

Battles are engaged by contact with the enemy on a map. The player usually attacks first, unless the enemy has caught the player's side or from behind. Battling in the game takes place on a battlefield under a variation of the ATB system, in which the player must wait for a gauge to fill up before acting. Only one robot may fight at any time up against at most three enemies; the player can switch between robots at the cost of a turn (like in Pokémon). During the player's turn, none of the enemies will act, and the robot is free to move around the battlefield and attack with one of its weapons. After the robot acts, a gauge appears with the letters E (empty) and F (full) at either end. The gauge's depletion will depend on what action the player used. Until the gauge reaches F, all enemies take turns attacking. Like most RPG video games, the character gains experience points, called here "Megs of Data". Once enough Megs are obtained, the player gains a level. Also all enemies do not give money by default, but certain enemies do drop it on the map after being defeated. Most enemies will drop some item or low-level equipment, and these can be "Recycled" to make money. This battling system also uses bonuses. The player can earn extra Megs of Data by defeating enemies within a time limit and using melee attacks. Bonus capsules are also scattered around for the duration of the time limit that can contain items or traps. Also sometimes known as Robotrec.
